All about Alphie
When kittens are born they are extra small and fragile. This increases their potential of becoming ill or getting an infection. Infections in newborn kittens are quite serious as their bodies are small and they have not built up adequate immunity against many diseases or potential infections that may harm them. This article will focus on three infections that can affect newborn kittens; umbilical infections, toxic milk syndrome and septicemia.
When a female cat (aka a queen) gives birth, she will bite open the amniotic sac that surrounds the kitten. She will then chew through the umbilical cord of the kitten. Normally there are no problems.

My name's "Alphie" short for "Alpha Male" since I was first born from my mommy, Sheeba.
I'm a real purring machine & love to cuddle next to sleeping people. I also love the computer monitor -- it's fun to watch AND fun to lie on!
